Social Work (MSW)

Program Overview

Ryerson University’s School of Social Work is a leader in the field of social work education through its integration and study of anti-oppression and marginalization. Anti-oppression practices draw on critical analysis of socio-economic inequalities and processes of marginalization to understand how people become users of social services. This approach to practice involves critically interpreting and reflecting on social worker-client relations. Social workers with an anti-oppression perspective aim for social justice while addressing clients’ needs. This perspective is relevant to all major fields of social work, including practice within child welfare settings, hospitals, school boards, community agencies and government institutions.
